Quote:
The Indie Royale game bundle site tempts you to stay inside during the warm summer months with the Summer Bundle, featuring eight brilliant independent games available at a bargain, fluctuating price.

First up is award-winning arcade real-time strategy game from Oxeye Game Studio, Harvest: Massive Encounter, co-created by current Minecraft lead coder Jens Bergensten, and downloadable for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. In this RTS/tower defense title making its first-ever bundle inclusion, offering battles of epic proportions with a unique style of resource management and exploration. According to IGN, "Harvest is a tower defense game with a goal of achieving high scores rather than a congratulatory, 'You've triumphed! The galaxy is safe again,' followed by a 'Game Over.'" So it's a perfect way to while away the summer days inside!

Next up is a brand new update of a classic point-and-click adventure game from SkyGoblin Games,The Journey Down: Chapter One available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Desura and DRM-free. Play Bwana and his trusted sidekick Kito who struggle to make ends meet at their run-down gas station, as they embark on a spine-tingling adventure far from home and into a twisting plot of corruption and danger. Kotaku describes The Journey Down as a "delightful change of pace... (the) Afro-Caribbean setting is one that's very rarely used in video games, and comes with a great palette of colors and art to pull from."

Also making a bundle debut is the long-lost Serious Sam II, Croteam's twitch-tastic 2005 shooter sequel, brought back by Devolver Digital in 2012, and now available for Windows on Steam. IGN said of the game at the time of its release: "The action is fast and intense from start to finish. You'll have tons of beasts to blast and a wide variety of vibrant levels to run through" - and that's still just as true now!

Also included in this bundle a four-pack of top imported Japanese shmups from Rockin' Android, starting with all three games from Platine Dispositif's 'Gundemonium' trilogy, available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free: Gundemonium Recollection, GundeadliGne and Hitogata Happa. These three games, which span both horizontal and vertical scrolling, offer remarkably complex, yet flexible gameplay as you enjoy bullet-hell shoot-'em-up gameplay in a cartoonish steampunk universe. Notably, DIYGamer says of the collection: these games "have huge replay value. They're score-attack games, intended to be played dozens of times on a variety of modes and mastered thoroughly over time."

The fourth game from Rockin' Android is Orange_Juice's Acceleration of Suguri-X Edition, available for Windows on Desura and DRM-Free. According to GameSpot, this game "offers a delicious mix of arena fighting and bullet-hell chaos." By mixing a shmup and competitive arena fighting, Acceleration of Suguri-X Edition offers a depth-filled game, inspired by Japanese titles like Senko No Ronde, and featuring eleven levels of gameplay, a techno-trance soundtrack and schoolgirls who duke it out over who gets to eat the last pudding on earth. What more could you ask for?

Finishing everything up, the bundle also features Dino Run SE from Pixeljam, available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Desura and DRM-Free. This pixel-heavy indie classic is presented in a Special Edition, enhancing the Flash original with speed runs, extra multiplayer maps, hats, and other notable upgrades. Based off a pixelated prehistoric world, escape the inevitable doom wave of extinction by controlling a speedy raptor across tar pits, crumbling hillsides and meteorite showers while gobbling up anything that gets in the way.

As a one-off bonus, the bundle also includes another chance to get your hands on a Steam Windows Beta key to hot F2P action-RTS AirMech, with bonus in-game item: an exclusive Indie Royale "Fleur de Lis" Companion/Pet for your AirMech! Excusive to the Summer Bundle, this is one of the very first cosmetic items for AirMech. AirMech is still in closed beta on Steam right now, making these codes very difficult to come by, so many thanks to Carbon Games for partnering with us to offer these keys to all our valued customers.

Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Summer Bundle will get 'Pixeljams Volume 1' compilation - featuring tunes from top electronic artists like Miles Tilmann, Datasette, Mark DeNardo, + Dosh - normally a $5 value on its own. This collection of new and old tracks from the Pixeljam team (Dino Run) offers up nine tracks of pure bleepy joy. Included in Pixeljams Volume 1 is the Wiretap EP (Kate Simko + Miles Tilmann) and a goodie bag of images, animations and other PixelJam-related stuff.

Also don't forget that Indie Royale just launched its Collection feature. This is a page where Indie Royale purchasers can earn loyalty rewards, manage keys for already-purchased bundles, and add already-completed bundles to their Wishlist for possible bundle reappearances! More info on the Indie Royale Collection is available via this blog post.

More information on the Summer Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. And a final reminder - the more buyers, the more the price will increase, unless kind buyers drop the price, so grab the bundle now while the price is still low!

Hat zwar weder was mit Indies, noch was mit Deals zu tun... aber naja, wollen wir mal nicht so sein:

sowie Open Steam Works sagen ja.
Aber denk dran:
Why The FF7PC Port Sucked
Quote:
I feel sorry for Square because it was the best they could do under the circumstances. It was a really good idea on paper. FF7 had broken all kinds of records and Square's stockholders wanted the company to diversify. FF7 was a PSX console exclusive, so they had to go to PC. Looking around Square saw that Edios has successfully managed the port of "Tomb Raider" to the PC and was scoring Core a lot of cash. They decided to try that formula for FF7. Edios bought the rights to publish FF7 for the PC for a cool million bucks. Square contracted out the port team in Honolulu. (Unlike what people think, Square did the port, not Edios. Edios was just a publisher who gained the rights to the game.)

That's when the problems started.

After the PSX version of FF7 went gold, Square shut down the FF7-PSX project. When I mean "shut down" I mean they set a firestorm and blew apart the entire team. Think of it as a mass-firing. All the coders, artists, managers, and equipment were either transfered to the FF9 project, moved to other parts of the company, released from their contract, or simply deprecated. The version control software that Square used was crap. When the Honolulu team finialy got the code, they were in about a month before the realized they got a non-final and non-functional version. Development stalled for a few weeks and the final code was given over. The word from above was to port it. That's it. No fancy improvements over the director's vision. (The director having moved on and was not able to be consulted). Some concessions were made on resolutions and input. Sadly, the only thing that the port team had as far as artwork was concerned was the original pre-compiled PSX data. The computers used to render the original backgrounds and movies were all gone. The 3D models for the cinimatics were no longer available. Many of the original artists and animators were contract workers and were no longer with the company. It would also seem that the original MIDI music was tweaked by audio engineers after it was complied into the PSX SEQ format. The original MIDIs that the PC received were not the final versions.

The budget for port was also very meager.

Not only this, Sony's development libs (PSY-Q) were only authorized to be used on the PSX, so they had to rewrite the graphics libs and change the art formats.

The programmers had also never done a PC game before, and made all kinds of architectural mistakes. One big one was compiling only for a particular CPU type, the first release didn't even run on Cyrix chips. (I don't know if that was a bad thing or not.) That's the equivalent of only compiling for Intel, and if you had an AMD, you were assed out. The port was also bloated and they left their debug information in the executable(!) (Now you know our secret! Drat!)

In a nutshell, the game was never designed to be a PC game. That's why the PC version sucked so badly.

So what did Square learn? Well, after the FF7 PC disaster, Square realized that *ALL* their code, which they had been neglecting, was a pretty valuable asset. They started a very long-term project to "up-port" all their core games. They used standard C code, and made them portable to generic embedded systems. The new re-releases are the end result of the FF7 fiasco. They have a new kickin' 2D engine. The secret is that the new engine for FF1-6 (excluding 3) are not ports... They are pixel-perfect Total Conversions. (Pretty slick, huh?) Now, all the data is standardized and a port can happen as quick as the engine team can port it to the new CPU/GPU.

So, don't knock the PC engine... It reminds me of something a friend said.

"The secret to success is not victory, but failure. Only in failure do you learn from your mistakes. After that, you can go on to fail a bigger and bigger things."

And now you know.
